What the ONC's Proposed Rule on Information Blocking Means for Your Work


Information blocking has been a hot-button issue for years as it has impeded innovation and patient healthcare options for too long. The 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act) sought to eliminate these problems but information blocking persisted. However, in February 2019 the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) announced a proposed rule with consequences to non-compliance with the Cures Act that may finally force true interoperability. As a healthcare decision maker you have a real opportunity to build an innovation strategy around these changes. To learn how, join our webinar.

Tuesday, June 18
1:00-2:00 PM ET

True data interoperability enables innovation and better patient experience. In aggregate, both of these activities have the potential to accelerate the shift away from fee-for-service and towards fee-for-value healthcare. Dan Orenstein has spent much of his career providing legal counsel to healthcare organizations on regulatory and risk management issues as well as how to implement growth initiatives that comply with healthcare laws and regulations. That experience has made him an expert in applying policy to healthcare strategy. He has studied the proposed rule and in this webinar he will provide a summary of the existing legislation, implications of non-compliance with the proposed rule as well as insight into putting it into practice.

Attend this webinar and learn:

  • To identify information blocking practices
  • Seven exceptions to the information blocking provision and how they may apply to your work
  • Summary of the public comments about the proposed rule and the overall perception of it in the industry
  • The potential impact to your healthcare organization

We hope you can join us for this webinar, one full of practical guidance for busy executives.
